A funeral Mass will be held this coming Saturday morning in honor of a Hudson County woman who was discovered dead at a motel close to the Meadowlands earlier this week. The young woman was 22 years old.
On Friday, March 3, Bergen County Prosecutor Mark Musella declared that it “does not appear that any foul play” was involved in the death of Karol Mejia, a resident of Guttenberg who died at the Super 8 Hotel just off Highway 120.
After receiving the results of the toxicological examination, the Bergen County Medical Examiner’s Office will make a conclusive decision.
The prosecution stated that Carlstadt police officers who responded to a 911 call from the Washington Avenue motel soon after 5 a.m. on Tuesday used a master key card to enter the room where they discovered Mejia dead.
According to a source from law enforcement, concerns were aroused when a companion she had supposedly been with could not be located anywhere. Musella did not address this particular component of the study in any way.
Karol Christina Mejia began her life in Isla de Margarita, Venezuela. As a young child, she moved to West New York, New York, with her family.
Her mother, Andrea, her brother, Bacher Andres Moubayad, and her grandmother, Fanny Grajales, are the only people who will remember her.
At the Barquin Funeral Home, which is located at 7101 Broadway in Guttenberg, visitors were welcome on Friday, March 3, from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., and again from 9 a.m. until 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 4.
A funeral Mass will be held on Saturday at Our Lady of Fatima RC Church, which is located in North Bergen at the intersection of Kennedy Boulevard and 81st Street. The service will begin at 11 a.m.
The burial will be carried out in secret.
